The World Championship tournament in Mexico will, hopefully, help to erase memories of Elista 06 and all that khazi related embarrassment.
Not that computer assisted cheating at chess events is a new thing. Mission Impossible were there forty years ago.
PS: Mystic Speedy Malc is up to his old tricks again. In today's Sunday Telegraph he confidently predicts the UK - China Chess Summit "will be a tough slog" for the home side. That's the UK - China Chess Summit that ended a week ago in a 28-20 victory for the visitors in case you're not living in whatever Time Zone Malc calls home.
Let's end with a sneek preview of the opening credits of a brand new episode of Mission Impossible. Details of the plot are not yet available but the programme is believed to revolve around the likelihood of a poor down trodden chess journalist getting a column published in timely fashion.
Is that taken fom an actual game do you know? I thought it was going to be Anderssen-Dufresne for a moment.
best view of the board is around 3:02.
Looks composed to me. White is at least a piece and a pawn up (posibly two pieces if that's not a pawn on d4 but a bishop instead) prior to the double rook sacrifice.
very obvious Knight sac to finish off.
Could just be a 19th century (or earlier) hack I suppose.
